The stork has dropped off a new basket.

Quantum3D(TM), Inc. (Booth No. 1210), announced today at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), three new AAlchemy(TM) models that employ Quantum3D’s patent pending Performance Trilinear(TM) technology that effectively doubles the nominal pixel fill rate performance of the systems. The new models that incorporate the Performance Trilinear technology includes the flagship AAlchemy TX 8464, the midrange AAlchemy QX 8264 and the entry level AAlchemy QX 4232A — which is based on the Voodoo®5 6000 technology recently licensed by Quantum3D from 3dfx Interactive®. Both the AAlchemy QX 8264 and the AAlchemy QX 4232A will be demonstrated in the Quantum3D Booth No. 1210 at I/ITSEC.

The flagship AAlchemy TX 8464 graphics subsystem includes sixteen 3dfx VSA-100 chips with a total of 1,024 MB of graphics memory and GB/sec of dedicated graphics memory bandwidth. Equipped with dual 933 MHz Intel® Pentium® III processors with Performance Trilinear, 4 sub-sample T-buffer full scene anti-aliasing, per-pixel-fog and alpha-blending enabled, the AAlchemy TX 8464 delivers 891 Megapixels/sec and renders greater than 1.4 Million (M) independent textured triangles per second measured using RealWorld Benchmark(TM) v2.3.1 gfill and gvt tests at 1280 x 1024 resolution. The AAlchemy TX 8464 features a NAFTA MSRP of $40,000 per channel and will be available in Q101.

The mid-range AAlchemy QX 8264 graphics subsystem includes eight 3dfx VSA-100 chips with a total of 512 MB of graphics memory and GB/sec of dedicated graphics memory bandwidth.

The AAlchemy QX 8264 features a NAFTA MSRP of $20,000 per channel and is available now.

The entry-level AAlchemy QX 4232A graphics subsystem includes four VSA-100 chips with a total of 128 MB of graphics memory and GB/sec of dedicated graphics memory bandwidth. Equipped with dual 800 MHz Intel Pentium III processors with Performance Trilinear, 4 sub-sample T-buffer full scene anti-aliasing, per-pixel-fog and alpha-blending enabled, the AAlchemy QX 4232A delivers 234 Megapixels/sec and renders greater than 1.4 M independent textured triangles per second– measured using RealWorld Benchmark v2.3.1 gfill and gvt tests at 1280 x 1024 resolution. The AAlchemy QX 8264 features a NAFTA MSRP of $10,000 per channel and will be available in Q101.

A bit pricey. Can’t wait to see more benchmarks.
